WATCH: Georgia Deputies Kill Dog, then Order Owner to Decapitate it

Friday, December 15th, 2017

Georgia deputies forced a man to cut off the head of his dog after shooting it.
Or go to jail.
The man chose to decapitate his dog named Big Boy.
Big Boy’s owner Joe Goodwin recorded the incident with his cell phone.
Crawford County sheriff’s deputy James Hollis arrived at Goodwin’s home after Big Boy allegedly bit two people.
A Crawford County deputy shot the dog moments earlier.
The video begins with Hollis telling Crawford he’ll take him to jail unless he cuts off his dog’s head.
Goodwin wanted to take his dog to the vet.
“I tell you what,” Hollis yells at Crawford.
“I will (sic) takes you to jail and charge you and we’ll see how much a lawyer is then.”
“Charge me for what?”
“When I get there–when I get there and give you the charges.”
“With what? Are you going to make it up”
“I don’t make up anything. I’m gonna give you Georgia law, OK?” Hollis threatens.
“What’s the Georgia law? What law did I break?” Crawford asks.
“I tell you what, sir. You can sit there and try to record all you want, OK. We asking you to cut the dog’s head.”
“And you refusing right?”
“I ain’t even got a fucking knife to cut the mother fucker off,” Crawford tells the deputies before he begins to narrate.
“I have to cut my dog’s head off.”
“Because the cop just told me to.”
“Or if not, I’m going to jail, ya’ll.”
“That man right there. Then when I told him I did not want to cut my dog’s head off. He grabs me by the damn shirt and slams me against the truck, because I’m cussing.”
“It’s not against the law to cuss.”
Crawford County Sheriff Lewis Walker said Hollis shouldn’t have told Crawford to behead his dog.
“They did get someone on the phone with the health department that made an attempt to tell the gentleman what he

Texas Cop Indicted for Shooting Unarmed Man Burglarizing Own Truck

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017

The Texas cop who shot an unarmed man for trying to break into his own truck – shooting him again after the man resisted an anal cavity search – was indicted by a grand jury last week.
“The jury got it right,” Dallas County District Attorney Faith Johnson announced after the indictment.
“We will be prosecuting this case very vigorously, we are seeking whatever we can get out of this case,” she said, vowing to seek the maximum punishment for Mesquite cop Derrick L. Wiley.
Dallas County DA Faith Johnson announces indictment of former Mesquite Police officer Derick Wiley
Lyndo Jones was shot while attempting to disable the alarm on his truck, which had malfunctioned on November 8.
Police said they were responding to reports of a possible car burglary after somebody nearby called 911 after hearing the alarm.
Seconds after their arrival, Wiley shot Jones in the stomach.
Then, after he resisted an anal cavity search, he was shot a second time in the back.
“Within 10 seconds of their arrival, he had been shot it the stomach,” Lee Merritt, an attorney representing 31-year-old Lyndo Jones, told WFAA8.
“While on the street suffering from his wound, officers attempted to perform a cavity search and he reacted to that, and he was shot a second time in his back.”
“Mr. Jones reacted to the unlawful sodomy and was consequently shot a second time in the back,”  Justine Moore, another attorney representing Jones, said in a written statement.
Emergency personnel transported Jones to the Baylor Medical Center where he was handcuffed and shackled to his hospital bed and denied visits from his family.
In an attempt to avoid liability for the shooting, Mesquite police initially charged Jones with evading arrest.
The only problem was Jones didn’t commit a crime in the first place, so police had no legal reason to arrest him.

New York Man Arrested for Posing as Cop to Get Discount at Starbucks

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017

All he wanted was a law enforcement discount.
A New York man is in hot water after being arrested for impersonating a police officer in order to get a discount on his coffee on December 8.
Mark Setter, 48, flashed a fake badge and a BB gun, demanding a discount at a Buffalo Starbucks around 11 p.m. according to, FOX5NY.
Mark Stetter, 48, of Buffalo, New York
Sporting a gun inside of a holster attached to his belt, and his fake police badge, Stetter claimed he was a detective in order to gain access into the business after it was closed.
According to Buffalo police, Stetter then left Starbucks and attempted to buy a cup of Joe at Spot Coffee after closing time.
It was all fun and games until a coffee shop employee called the fuzz on Stetter.
After police arrested Setter and charged him with menacing, criminal trespassing and impersonating an officer, they determined his sidepiece was actually a BB gun.
This isn’t the first time a civilian was arrested for trying to flex phony blue privilege.
In 2013, authorities arrested Charles “Chuck” Barry after he made two stops flashing a fake badge at Dunkin Donuts in Florida.
Pasco County police said Barry made two stops at a store in Trinity before he was busted and his cover was blown.
After the first stop, a Dunkin Donuts workers told cops Barry was a regular customer who “comes through the drive through and demands a police discount for his order.”
Barry claimed to be a United States Marshal.
Michelle Hoeltk, a Dunkin Donuts employee, told deputies Barry had been “abusing his discount by coming in on the weekends with his family and demanding the discount.”
Hoeltk said Dunkin told Pasco County deputies managers decided to “no longer offer him the discount because of his continuous abuse.”
Eventually, his license plate number was captured on surveillance

WATCH: Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Walker Interferes with Freedom of The Press Again

Tuesday, July 18th, 2017

Once again Daniel Saulman aka “Tom Zebra” known for his web page “Mistaken Bacon”  delivers as he exposes the now notorious Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Ryan Walker (524706) who on March 15, 2017, arrested citizen journalist  of the former YouTube Channel +POETIC  claiming he violated California P.C. § 402(a) when he was far outside of the established perimeter, so much so there was no yellow barrier tape or any semblance of a barrier.
Mind You, +POETIC was not out COP WATCHING, COP BLOCKING or even performing a FIRST AMENDMENT AUDIT, he was walking towards his home after finishing a long day at work, when he came upon several Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department vehicles and started documenting his surroundings.
A 100% Lawful and Protected Activity as the State of California Legislature determined when it changed the law with the passing of California P. C. § 148 (g) as well as determined by the 9th Circut Court of Appeals in the written opinion regarding Fordyce vs City of Seattle. Yet somehow LASD Deputy Ryan Walker assigned to the South Los Angeles Sheriff’s Station either fails to understand the Law or simply does not care to follow it.
Which should come at no surprise when one examines the past and recent history of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, with Former long time Sheriff Lee Baca and his cronies are either in or are going to spend some time in a federal prison, not the typical model citizens many a Law Enforcement Agency claim they employ. Yet individuals like Walker are gainfully employed and granted the authority to throw citizens in a cage and kill a citizen if they fail to comply.
The Video starts with Daniel riding up on a traffic stop where an LASD Deputy can be seen searching the interior of the stopped car for anything to arrest and charge the

Miami-Dade Prosecutor Loses Landmark Right To Record Case In Federal Court

Monday, July 17th, 2017

A Florida man won the right to surreptitiously record police officers while making internal affairs complaints without the threat of prosecution when he defeated the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office (SAO) in a federal appeals court ruling.
Prosecutors tried to censor the citizen, who published his incriminating recording of a police chief.
A lower court erred by agreeing with Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle when she sent a written threat of prosecution under Florida’s wiretapping statute to Dr. Eric McDonough, for making a secret recording and publishing it on to YouTube, in a video which you can see below.
Federal judges on the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals said “the government’s threatened prosecution has no basis in the law,” vindicating an important right to record for the public.
Nineteen million Floridians will benefit directly from the published ruling.
And a police chief just lost his “get out of jail free” card from the local prosecutor with whom his department works.
The Homestead Police Department’s Chief Alexander Rolle, and internal affairs Officer Antonio Acquino, were under a Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) investigation which stalled, when the SAO’s letter declared Dr. McDonough’s recording unlawful, and therefore inadmissible in court.
Now, criminal investigators will have to re-open the case against a Chief of Police desperate to cover up the crimes his department committed, by committing, even more, crimes against a citizen whose only crime, was filing a legitimate grievance over his treatment by a uniformed public official.
Even Miami’s largest police union boss thinks that the Chief belongs in jail:
“We are hoping to see some arrests out of this,” said John Rivera, president of the Dade County Police Benevolent Association, the union that represents Homestead’s rank-and-file officers. “The chief should go to jail. The captain should go to jail. And [Aquino] should go to jail.”
Since then Dr. McDonough founded the True Homestead page on Facebook where

LAPD Officer Feared for His Life, When He Committed Statutory Rape

Friday, June 23rd, 2017

The City of Los Angeles Police Department and it’s Chief Charlie Beck have had one troublesome week but not as bad a Police Officer Robert Cain’s. Robert Cain now charged with violating California Penal Code Section 261.5 (a) after it was discovered during the investigation into the week-old incident involving stolen LAPD cruisers and a group of teenage LAPD Cadets.
Robert Cain is reported by local media as the individual who controlled the issuance of equipment and vehicles at the LAPD Devonshire Station. The very same location the LAPD cruisers were reported stolen from.
[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOztigfCUg4?feature=oembed&w=620&h=349] What is not surprising is that Los Angeles County District Attorney Jackie Lacy has taken easy on Cain, simply charging him with a minor offense versus more serious charges with intensifiers attached like she instructs her staff to do with even the most minor of cases. Let’s not even go into the LA DA’s office practice of refusing to drop charges even if there is a mountain of evidence to counter the fictional claims made by the individuals presenting the charges.
This event is not an anomaly, not with the LAPD nor any other Law Enforcement Agency, this is what these individuals do and history shows it.
Chief Charlie Beck is reported as the person who personally arrested Cain, yesterday afternoon, that is an absolute first.
*disclaimer Robert Cain was not in fear for his life as far as we know, just pointing out the ridiculousness of the claim the claim of one fearing for their lives in defense of committing murder.

Caught On Camera: Body Worn Camera Captures Texas College Cop’s Race Driven Deeds

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

If not for the amazing work by local media outlet KSAT 12 (ABC), former University of Texas San Antonio Campus Police Officer Sean Callahan would still be on the job terrorizing and two of his supervisor would still have their positions, but happily that is not the case.
[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80lDNTQvAoQ?feature=oembed&w=620&h=349] All this stems from a February 14th, 2017 incident where a young man accidentally shot himself while handling a firearm, as a result it seems every cop in town showed up to this incident and they apparently needed something to do, so they started wandering around knocking on doors at 11:30 PM. Not having any luck finding whatever they were looking for they came across an identified person who voluntarily directed the pack of officers to the residence of 23-year-old Jonathan Richardson.
Mind you it was not,” hey go check those fellows out they may have done something, “instead it’s something like “A bunch of ghettos over there,” then a voice can be heard describing the residence as a “Trap House” when a female officer can be heard questioning the term, when another officer comment about not being from the ghetto. Callahan knocks on the door, Richardson answers and immediately puts his hands in the air, when his pants start to slip down, he moves to pull them up when Callahan throws him to the ground for moving. As if he has something wrong except be the person who he is and answering the door.
Here is “Raw” and complete video:
[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FHtfKyDhwsg?feature=oembed&w=620&h=349] Richardson was unlawfully detained and suffered an attack from an armed assailant, that if he had not been a police officer he would be charged with a crime, but sadly that is not the case.
Incidents like this happen far too often and if not for Body Worn Cameras and the program of auditing officer’s

California Deputy Blames Satan in YouTube Apology for Selling Drugs

Monday, May 15th, 2017

A California deputy facing up to five years in prison for selling drugs seized during raids issued an apology in a Youtube video blaming satan for his misdeeds.
“I made that decision based on Satan playing games with me, and making me feel like I was prideful and unable to go to family members for help,” Logan August said sitting next to his wife in a video recorded apology to friends, family, co-workers and the community.
According to court documents, while working for the Kern County Sheriff’s Office, August stole marijuana seized in ten raids in 2014, giving the pot to a confidential informant to sell.
Deputy August gave the informant 25 pounds of marijuana, receiving a $15,000 cut of the sales.
Between June 2014 and October 2014, August colluded with a former deputy, Derrick Penny and his informant, as well as former Bakersfield police detective Patrick Mara – who was sentenced to five years in prison last year – when he stole and sold marijuana taken from a locked evidence storage facility.
Penny made out with $1,200 in profit, according to his signed statement.
According to public records obtained through Transparent California, August and Penny earned near $200,000 a year in pay and benefits during 2014.
Both August and Penny, who both joined the department in 2007, admitted to their involvement in the scheme and are scheduled to plead guilty to charges of conspiracy to distribute and possession with intent to distribute today at the federal courthouse in Fresno.
The maximum penalty for their crimes is five years behind bars in federal prison in addition to a $250,000 fine, although prosecutors are expected to recommend a lessor sentence as part of a plea deal.
August and Penney used their keys issued by the Kern County Sheriff’s Office to access the department’s marijuana storage unit then sawed off the

WATCH: Colorado Cop Stages Fake Drug Bust on Body Camera to Frame Man for Drugs

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

Video footage released last week shows a Colorado cop framing a man for drugs and gun possession by staging a fake drug bust reenactment on his body cam in a tow yard after an initial search of the vehicle may have turned up nothing.
Pueblo police officer Seth Jensen claimed he had his body camera turned off during the initial search, which is when he found the contraband, so then turned on his camera to conduct the search again under the guise that it was his first time searching the car.
But for all we know, he may have planted the drugs and gun in the car prior to reenacting the search.
The revelations led to charges being dismissed against Joseph Cajar, who Jensen claims was in possession of 6.8 grams of heroin, a Ruger .357 Magnum pistol, a scale and a pill bottle with amphetamine residue inside of his car, resulting in the 36-year-old man being charged with possession with intent to manufacture or distribute a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and possession of a weapon by a previous offender.
Jenson confessed to faking the footage after a prosecutor texted him to ask about discrepancies in his report after he was cross-examined during a preliminary hearing.
After learning how Jenson defrauded the court by faking the footage and testifying, a Pueblo deputy district attorney dismissed the charges, conceding Jenson’s footage was staged.
Jensen had pulled over for a traffic violation in November 2016. During the traffic stop, Jenson had Cajar’s car towed when he was unable to provide him with current insurance and registration, according to a police report.
Cajar might still be facing charges if it weren’t for the text messages exchanged between Jenson and deputy district attorney Anne Mayer after Jenson was cross-examined during a preliminary hearing on March 22.
Mayer texted Jenson about why

Texas Cop Wanted After Staging Suicide, Crossing Border into Mexico

Saturday, April 29th, 2017

A Texas cop who went missing on April 25 now has a warrant for his arrest after texting a suicide note to his wife, faking his own death then fleeing to Mexico in an inflatable raft.
But it was determined he was not dead after he was recorded on a surveillance camera having a meal at Wendy’s.
Interim Austin Police Chief Brian Manning says officer Coleman Miller Martin’s actions are an “elaborate ruse.”
Austin cop Coleman “Cole” Martin
The Austin Police Department issued an arrest warrant Friday for Martin, 29, and filed criminal charges for filing a false report against the officer – who intentionally sank his car in his efforts to stage his own death.
His vehicle was found Wednesday in Lake Amistad, which is located near the Mexican border.
Detectives learned Martin has a close relationship with a female who is not his wife. She told police his entire disappearance was an attempt to fake his own death and that he’s actually alive.
The woman showed police an email Martin sent her stating his plan to stage his own death had been successful.
Police issued a statewide BOLO or “be on the look out” after they were notified Martin was missing on Tuesday when his wife called 911.
Martin’s wife reported to dispatchers her husband was suicidal and left the house around 10 a.m.
Police say she and Martin exchanged texts throughout the day and at around 10:15 p.m. Martin texted a handwritten note saying he intended on committing suicide by drowning himself in a lake near the Mexican border.
Martin also left a card behind with a note saying he needed some time to himself.
Investigators in the case found Martin withdrew $300 in cash earlier in the day and purchased a raft at a sporting goods store in Austin and was later seen on surveillance video eating food at Wendy’s.
Officer Martin’s debit card records show he bought a rope and concrete

WATCH: Texas Deputy Kills Unarmed Navy Vet; Sheriff Lies About “Gun Battle” That Never Took Place

Saturday, April 22nd, 2017

A Texas deputy shot and killed an unarmed Navy veteran during a traffic stop, then the sheriff in charge  lied about it, saying the deputy and the man were engaged in a shootout where the deputy was fired upon first, prompting him to fire his weapon eight times.
But that never happened.
Dash cam video released this week shows not only was there no shootout, Lyle P. Blanchard, 59, didn’t even have a gun when he exited his vehicle – only to be struck by four of eight rounds fired by Bell County Sheriff’s Corporal Shane Geers in Harker Heights, Texas.
Police also claim Blanchard had anti-police literature, bomb materials and other weaponry stashed at his house.
But that wasn’t true either.
The video shows Geers approaches Blanchard’s body three minutes after shooting him, but does not attempt to render any aid.
Beers was then cleared by a Bell County grand jury February 15 after Ranger Justin Duck conducted an investigation, according to the Killeen Daily Herald.
After deputy Geer shot Blanchard, Bell County Sheriff Eddy Lange apparently lied  to reporters at the scene. You can hear Sheriff Lange state clearly to a n Geers shot Blanchard during a “gun battle” in the video directly below.
[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CPJjeXU02ug?feature=oembed&w=620&h=465] Lange’s ramblings to the press were not included in the Ranger’s investigation, and Geer’s testimony to the rangers given several days after the shooting did not mention any exchange of gun fire.
According to Geers’ testimony in the transcribed report, Geers stated Blanchard refused clearly-stated verbal commands after Blanchard stopped his SUV and yelled obscenities at Geers through his driver’s-side window, which was open.
“I continued to loudly and clearly instruct him to show me his hands, as they were both not visible,” Geers stated. “Instead of complying, the driver yelled other obscenities at me during my approach.”
But dash cam video shows Geers left his emergency sirens on throughout the incident,

Texas Cops Shoot Man Multiple Times, Lie About it, then Refuse to Allow Family to Visit him in Hospital

Monday, April 17th, 2017

Four Texas cops shot a man multiple times initially reporting it was necessary to shoot him so many times because he fired a gun at them.
But three days after the April 7 shooting, Austin police issued a contrary report stating three of the officers were only following the lead of the first officer who erroneously began shooting rounds at the man claiming he pointed a gun at him.
Turns out, Lawrence Parrish never shot a gun and maybe did not even have a gun.
“We already confirmed that he ain’t shot no gun,” said Parrish’s older brother, Cluren Williams, who added that police shot his brother nine times.
“We have yet to confirm if he had one.”
Then, more than a week after Austin police shot him, the Travis County Sheriff’s Office would not allow Parrish’s family to visit him as he recovered.
They did, however, allow his mother to visit him in the hospital immediately after the shooting as you can see in the video below.
But that all came to a stop once the truth came out that he never shot at officers.
“They won’t give us any access. We’re not getting any logical explanations,” Williams told KXAN on Friday. “We’re not even getting any good reasoning why the mother can’t see him.”
Brothers Cluren Williams, left, and Lawrence Parrish in photo on left. Cluren Williams, left, Lawrence Parrish in photo on right.
A spokesperson for the sheriff’s office, who is in charge of maintaining custody of Parrish, would not elaborate on why Parrish’s family is not able to visit him but told KXAN he is considered an inmate and said the department adheres to extreme safety protocols because hospitals are not controlled like jails.
Williams, however, says the police aren’t being transparent enough and remains skeptical of the police narrative, especially after Austin police claimed no dash cam footage of the shooting exists.

California Cop Suspended for Beating and Choking Man for Jaywalking

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

The Sacramento police officer caught on video choking and punching a man for jaywalking was suspended Tuesday after his supervisors viewed the footage.
The cop claimed he feared for his safety because the man removed a jacket and dropped it on the street, indicating he was challenging the cop to fight.
But the man, Nandi Cain Jr., said he was just taking off his jacket to show he was not armed.
The video that surfaced, which was recorded by a friend of the victim, does not show Cain raising his fists to fight, even after the cop grabs him by the neck and throws him down on the street before sitting on him and wailing on him with punches.
Cain was charge with resisting arrest and was later accused on becoming combative with cops while being booked in jail.
However, the 24-year-old man was released from jail Tuesday morning with no charges.
Meanwhile, they have yet to identify the cop. And they have yet to release dashcam footage of the incident, claiming it is being reviewed, even though we can be sure they did just that before placing the cop on administrative leave.
And yes, it is a paid suspension, but both the chief and mayor made it clear they were not happy with what they saw on the video.
According to Fox 40:
Sacramento Police Sergeant Bryce Heinlein told Fox40 that the “actions of this officer does not represent the men and women of this police department … the video speaks for itself and you know obviously we’re taking this seriously.”
Heinlein said Cain was initially arrested on suspicion of resisting arrest and became combative with deputies while he was being booked at Sacramento’s primary jail.
Cain was released Tuesday morning because police did not have sufficient grounds to file a complaint against him, Heinlein said.

North Miami Police Chief Reveals Coverup and Lies in Last Year’s Controversial Shooting of Unarmed Caretaker

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

The award-winning Florida cop who made international headlines last year after shooting an unarmed caretaker who had his arms in the air, then claiming he had feared for his life after confusing a toy truck for a loaded gun, was informed by another cop seconds before the shooting that the object was not a gun, but a toy.
But North Miami police officer Jonathan Aledda fired anyway, not even striking the autistic man with the truck that he had confused for a gun, but his caretaker who had already told officers it was not a gun; the man they later claimed they were trying to protect from the toy-wielding autistic man they believed had a gun.
However, not only did caretaker Charles Kinsey tell the cops it was not a gun before the shooting, but a North Miami police sergeant who viewed the object through binoculars also confirmed it was a toy truck, telling the other officers to hold their fire.
And the officers did hold their fire, except for Aledda, who seconds earlier, had told fellow officers he had a clear shot on the subject, so apparently was not going to let that moment pass, even if had received a direct order not to shoot.
What else can we expect from a cop who was hired by North Miami police in 2012, despite several warning signs that he could become a problem cop because he possesses a “lack of tolerance” and was also described as being “judgmental; argumentative; critical; challenging; rigid; stubborn”?
Fortunately, Kinsey survived the shooting, and is now suing.
The stunning but not surprising revelations surfaced this week after the Miami New Times obtained an audio recording of North Miami Police Chief Gary Eugene being interviewed by Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigators ten days after the July 18, 2016 shooting. The recording

North Carolina Cop who Lied to Uber Driving Attorney about Recording Laws Demoted in Rank and Pay

Friday, March 31st, 2017

The North Carolina cop who became a viral sensation after telling an Uber driver that it was illegal to record him under a new law – only to learn the driver was also a lawyer – was demoted in rank and pay.
Wilmington Police Sergeant Kenneth Becker is now a corporal whose hourly salary was reduced by $1.38, according to the News and Observer.
The 17-year veteran was also assigned to the planning and research division, which appears to be more of an administrative position, meaning he will have less access to the public where he has proven to conduct unlawful searches.
The fact that he did not hesitate to conduct an unlawful search knowing he was being recorded makes us wonder how he treats citizens when he is not aware he is being recorded.
The incident took place on February 26 when Wilmington police pulled over Jesse Bright and his passenger after driving away from a house they had under surveillance.
Police said it was a drug house and believed Bright and his passenger had just purchased drugs. But Bright said his passenger, a dog groomer, was only there to pick up a check, a fact that was confirmed by police when they searched the passenger with his consent.
But Bright, a public defender who was driving for Uber to pay of school loans, did not consent to being searched. He also did not turn off his camera when ordered to do so.
Not only did Becker tell Bright that a new law had just passed forbidding the recording of cops in public without their permission, a New Hanover County sheriff’s deputy also went along with the story, telling Bright the same thing.
That was when Bright informed him he was an attorney who was certain there was no new law in the books forbidding the recording

Two NYPD Cops Indicted Twice in Two Months for Falsely Jailing Two Innocent Men

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017

Two NYPD cops thought they had an open-and-shut case when they arrested a man on drug charges, claiming he had seven grams of cocaine in his waistband, which could easily have sent him to prison for several years.
But now they are the ones facing a prison sentence after a surveillance camera proved they made the charges up.
The two New York City police detectives, Kevin Desormeau and Sasha Cordoba, both 33, were indicted Tuesday by the Queens District Attorney after a grand jury found enough evidence that they committed perjury and wrote false reports.
The same two cops – one who is an award winner – were also arrested last month after it was revealed they fabricated charges on another man, which resulted in him remaining in jail for eight months.
Both incidents took place three years ago, so there’s no telling how many other innocent people they arrested over the years.
The first arrest took place on August 28, 2014 after the detectives claimed Roosevelt McCoy, 47, had been standing in front of a restaurant dealing drugs, but the surveillance video shows he was inside the restaurant the entire time playing pool.
The cops transported him to the station where they strip searched him but found nothing.
The video also shows Cordoba taking McCoy’s bag that contained $300, which ended up disappearing.
McCoy ended up spending more than six weeks in Rikers  Island before he was released.
According to the New York Daily News:
Charges against McCoy were ultimately dismissed in March 2016, when his attorney Gabriel Harvis showed the DA’s office a video surveillance feed from inside a restaurant that showed McCoy playing pool the entire time the detectives said he was outside selling drugs.
The surveillance video also showed the two detectives enter the restaurant and bar while McCoy is playing pool and then escort him outside.

Nine Texas Cops Fired for Claiming to Make Traffic Stops They Never Made

Sunday, December 11th, 2016

Nine Texas cops were fired after a routine audit earlier this year exposed they lied about the number of traffic stops they made in order to boost the results of their performance on their department’s annual racial-profiling report.
The Arlington Police Department made the announcement late Friday, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
An attorney for two of the fired cops say they were merely trying to meet the department’s quota for writing tickets, which would be illegal under state law.
Discrepancies in their reports came to the attention of department officials after they attempted to view dash cam footage of the stops, which they later found did not exist.
That’s because they never happened.
In May, fifteen officers were placed on paid leave as the department conducted an internal affairs investigation into the revelation; an additional officer joined the accused shortly after.
The internal affairs investigation started in May this year after Arlington police officials detected suspicious reporting of traffic stops as they conducted routine supervisory audits of its patrol divisions’ traffic stops.
It concluded the officers – all who were assigned to the patrol division – reported they had made traffic stops that were actually never conducted.
Officers made the false reports on their in-car computers entering traffic stops at a particular address that never took place.
Supervisors were tipped off after the same vehicle was used for several stops.
The terminated officers were found guilty by department officials of  conduct unbecoming of a police officer for tampering with government records and lying about traffic stop reports, although they have the right to appeal the decision.
A Tarrant County District Attorney will decide if future criminal charges will be filed against the nine fired officers.
Two of the fired cops are accused of lying to internal affairs investigators about tampering with the traffic stop reports.
Three officers resigned before results of the investigation

Stalking Away The First Amendment: Part 1

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

 
Homestead Police Department (HPD) has silenced the First Amendment with false stalking charges and restraining orders.
Their abuses leading to two of my three false arrest, and to me being served with four frivolous restraining orders.
Sadly, such abuses are not limited to Florida, and occur nationwide.
I have researched this new trick in the police playbook being used to stalk away the First Amendment.
PINAC presents this series as a case study on such stalking abuses in Florida and across the country.
Included are discussions on the federal subsidies which create disincentives to fixing the problem, and discussions on Florida stalking law related to the First Amendment and online activities.
The focus is on cops who violate the law, yet when exposed hide behind laws meant for the protection of battered and abused women.
COWARDS!
HPD’s actions inspired creation of the Coward of the Month award, with John Monaco being the first nominee.

Some may choose to skip over this section, but being a Christian I must oblige these officers with truth as they are lacking in knowledge.  
Generally, I leave the good Lord out of secular discussions, but HPD officers John Monaco (video above) and Alejandro Murguido (email) blasphemously invoke God.
They bear false witness against their neighbors, not just me, breaking laws as ancient the Decalogue.

Stalking Away The First Amendment: Part 1

Friday, December 2nd, 2016

 
Homestead Police Department (HPD) has silenced the First Amendment with false stalking charges and restraining orders.
Their abuses leading to two of my three false arrest, and to me being served with four frivolous restraining orders.
Sadly, such abuses are not limited to Florida, and occur nationwide.
I have researched this new trick in the police playbook being used to stalk away the First Amendment.
PINAC presents this series as a case study on such stalking abuses in Florida and across the country.
Included are discussions on the federal subsidies which create disincentives to fixing the problem, and discussions on Florida stalking law related to the First Amendment and online activities.
The focus is on cops who violate the law, yet when exposed hide behind laws meant for the protection of battered and abused women.
COWARDS!
HPD’s actions inspired creation of the Coward of the Month award, with John Monaco being the first nominee.

Some may choose to skip over this section, but being a Christian I must oblige these officers with truth as they are lacking in knowledge.  
Generally, I leave the good Lord out of secular discussions, but HPD officers John Monaco (video above) and Alejandro Murguido (email) blasphemously invoke God.
They bear false witness against their neighbors, not just me, breaking laws as ancient the Decalogue.
Swearing oaths to be the keepers of the law, they do not keep it themselves, instead lording it over others.

New York Cop Resigns after Dash Cam Proves he Lied about Probable Cause to Search Man’s Car

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

The New York cop who pulled Philip M. Williams over for an expired license plate sticker last August told the 31-year-old man that he smelled marijuana, which gave him probable cause to bring the police dog over and sniff around the car.
Despite Williams saying he did not consent to a search, the dog ended up finding 17 pounds of marijuana in the trunk, which led to his arrest on felony drug charges.
In his report, Woodstock police officer Eric Schmidtke stated that he had smelled marijuana, which gave him probable cause.
He also repeated the same line to a grand jury in September, who then indicted Williams on felony drug charges, where he was facing 30 years in prison.
Schmidtke and his partner were even recognized at the Woodstock City Council meeting on October 4 for their “exceptional work” in keeping the streets safe from drug suspects.
But then a dash cam video surfaced later that month showing Schmidtke telling his partner that he had never smelled marijuana, proving he never had probable cause to search the car.
As a result, charges were dropped against Williams before he even made it to trial.
Last week, he filed a lawsuit against both Schmidtke and his K9 partner, Sharon Freund, who allowed her dog to search the car even though she had been told he never smelled the marijuana.
And Schmidtke was forced to resign last week, according to the Northwest Herald.
The dash cam video, posted below, shows Schmidtke prolonging the traffic stop to bring the dog over after telling Williams he smelled marijuana.
He then walks around to the back of the car, standing in front of his own car, where he admits to Freund that he did not smell the marijuana but wanted to search the car because Williams had prior drug arrests.
At first, Freund expresses concern about searching the car

Drunk Florida Cop who Claimed She was Targeted in Drive-by Shooting Resigns after Investigation Shows She Lied

Thursday, November 24th, 2016

A Florida cop who claimed she was shot at in a drive-by shooting while walking her dog, forcing her to return fire on the suspects, resigned last week after an internal affairs investigation determined she was drunk and lied about what happened.
Daytona Beach police officer Michelle Smith’s lies became evident to investigators when her victims provided them with three Snapchat videos that depict her as the aggressor.
In her resignation letter, Smith wrote that she was humiliated and treated unfairly during the investigation, according to WFTV.
Smith told investigators a group of suspects occupying two vehicles began challenging her to fight, so she called over her pit bull. She claimed at that point both cars sped off and shot at her as they fled and that she only fired back to protect herself.
Smith claimed she spotted the two cars near her apartment complex and determined  a drug deal was taking place on September 8 around 3 a.m. after she returned home from a night out partying with friends.
That’s when she said the cars began following  her and the people inside began egging her on to fight.
Investigators discovered not only was officer Smith’s story a lie, but that she was the one who instigated the confrontation, then fired shots at six people in two cars while intoxicated and without any provocation from the victims she confronted in the car.
Daytona Beach cops investigate a drive-by shooting against one of their own who claimed she was targeted. But their investigation determined she was actually the perp.
The witnesses told police investigators they were at the apartment looking for a lost set of keys when Smith approached while walking her dog. When a male passenger asked Smith if she was security, she did not reply.
Officer Smith tied her dog to a tree, then approached and began asking questions indicating she wanted to fight.

Philadelphia Cops Threaten to Seize Man’s Phone for Recording them Arresting Other Men

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016

Philadelphia cops were arresting two men on a darkened street when one of the men called out to a passing bicyclist, asking him to record the interaction.
The cyclist, Jean-Jacques Gabriel, wasted no time in stopping his bike, pulling out his smart phone and video recording on Facebook Live.
The cops then began harassing him with their usual bullying routine of accusing him of obstructing traffic, even though Gabriel was standing across the street on his bike in a bike lane.
When Gabriel continued recording, the cops then threatened to confiscate the phone as “evidence,” which is another tiresome routine that cops still use, even though the law is very clear that they are only allowed to confiscate cameras under exigent circumstances, meaning they would need to have a reasonable suspicion that the person with the camera is going to delete the footage.
Destroying cameras and deleting footage is what cops do once they confiscate video of questionable arrests, which is why it’s best never to hand over the camera under these circumstances.

The Philadelphia cop, who identified himself as “Ortega,” badge 2418, was in street clothes with a badge around his neck, and was very cocksure about his right to seize the man’s phone.
But Gabriel was even more confident about his rights to not hand over his phone, so he refused to do so, asking Ortega for a supervisor.
Gabriel remained calm, speaking truths, while the cop remained high-strung, spouting lies about him having to hand the phone over.
At one point, Gabriel informed him that he was recording on Facebook Live, a function that allows users to live stream video on their Facebook timelines.
And it was that mention of Facebook Live that the cop stopped harassing Gabriel for his phone, leaving us with

Georgia Cop Gets Shot, Blames Black Man, Gets Charged with Fabricating Story

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

Sherry Hall was two months into the job as a Georgia police officer when she came across a scary black man who shot her before escaping into the woods, sparking an intense manhunt that was followed by the usual condemnation of Black Lives Matter on social media.
But as we’ve seen so many times before, Hall had fabricated the entire story.
And now the Jackson police officer is facing four felonies.
Hall, who was careful to keep her dash camera turned off, did not realize investigators could still find ways to expose her lies.
Or maybe she didn’t expect the Georgia Bureau of Investigation to spend 600 hours investigating the shooting that took place on September 13, 2016 where she reportedly was shot in the abdomen, but protected by her bulletproof vest.

According to a statement released from the GBI Friday.
Earlier today, the GBI secured four criminal arrest warrants through the Superior Court of the Towaliga Judicial Circuit on Sherry Hall. They are as follows: False Statements, Tampering with Evidence, Interference with Government Property, and Violation of Oath of Office.
After following the leads and evidence, the investigation has now revealed that there is no, and never was, a suspect shooter at large in Jackson, Georgia.
The GBI was requested by the Jackson Police Department to independently investigate both the Officer Involved Shooting/ Use of Force and the alleged Aggravated Assault of a Police Officer. The GBI Milledgeville Office committed all available assets and resources, which included personnel from two regional offices. To date, there have been in excess of 600 investigative work hours expended on this investigation and certain aspects of this investigation are still ongoing.
The alleged incident began at approximately 12:08 a.m. on Tuesday, September 13, 2016 when Sherry Hall called out over

Texas Authorities Pay Sandra Bland’s Family $1.9 Million Settlement in Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Thursday, September 15th, 2016

The Texas Department of Public Safety and Waller County have reached a financial settlement with Sandra Bland’s family to pay $1.9 million dollars to end their wrongful death and civil rights lawsuit in federal court.
Sandra Bland was wrongfully arrested by Texas trooper Brian Encinia and booked on a 3rd degree felony charge of assaulting the officer, when there was no probable cause for an actual arrest in the first place, an arrest which was caught on camera by a citizen journalist.
Three days later the 28-year old Bland was found dead in her cell.
Her family demanded that preventative measures at the Waller County Jail be implemented where she died, according to NBC:
In addition to settling the civil suit, the Waller County Sheriff’s Office has agreed to install automated sensors to assure accurate and timely cell checks at the jail and staff an on-duty nurse around-the-clock, attorney Cannon Lambert told NBC News.

Waller County will pay $1.8 million of the cash settlement and Texas DPS will pay the rest.
As contemporaneous reports about Sandra Bland’s shocking death in jail explored, there were numerous possible causes of death related to her personal medical history and the medication Keppra which she used to control epilepsy. National medical experts agreed that it was impossible to determine if her death was suicide related to chemical withdrawal from the medication which could cause sudden unexplained death from epilepsy (SUDEP) and clinically heighten the risk of suicide. Medical experts noted that Bland could’ve easily had a concussion from the violent arrest, which would’ve made all of the above problems worse.
Inescapably, the combined behavior of Texas DPS and Waller County’s jailers definitely caused Bland’s untimely death.
Due to public pressure, the Texas state police released the trooper’s dash cam video of

Dallas Transit Police Sued For Wrongful Arrest of PINAC Reporter in Rosa Parks Plaza (UPDATED)

Saturday, September 10th, 2016

Update: We have the complete audio of the incident below.
Dallas Transit Police wrongly arrested a Texas man for taking photos in Rosa Parks Plaza near the city’s downtown bus station, now they’re facing a serious civil rights lawsuit, which you can see below.
“DART’s investigation sustained every single allegation against her,” said PINAC reporter Avi Adelman in a tone of deep frustration about the lawsuit he filed, “They found she [the DART Officer] lied 23 times in her statement vs the body microphone tape, and they are not going to do anything to punish her for this action.”
He accuses Dallas Area Rapid Transit of having an unconstitutional trespassing policy, and is seeking injunctive relief as well.
Ironically, the plaza is named after the famed civil rights activist, herself wrongfully arrested in a bus for exercising her First Amendment rights to free assembly.

Avi Adelman’s numerous photos mainly in Dallas have been broadcast on all of the region’s major local news outlets, as well as in the pages of PINAC News. He was taking photos on a public sidewalk of an EMS response to a medical emergency in public, near the central bus station when Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) Police Officer Stephanie Branch approached him, harassed him and arrested him this past February. 
“It took several months to realize what we already knew – DART Officer Stephanie Branch arrested me on a throw-down charge (criminal trespassing) to stop me from taking photographs of the medical scene,” Adelman told us, adding that he’d never been arrested before this incident, “She made up her own rules and thought that I would just accept being in jail as no big deal.”
DART dropped the criminal charges a week later, but not before Adelman spent a night in jail and
